Cooler air moved in to start the week in Boston, but a brief surge of heat is on the way.

This cooler air moved into the region after a cold front swung through late on Sunday.

More fall-like temperatures spread across the Northeast, dropping the city's high to 71 degrees Monday. Some spots in northern New England even struggled to climb out of the 60s.

However, things will heat up again by Tuesday as the cool air slides off into the northern Atlantic. This will allow warmer temperatures to push up from the South and highs again reaching into the lower 80s.

By the middle of Wednesday afternoon temperatures will surge into the lower 90s in Boston. There will also be humidity with this heat, making the AccuWeather.com RealFeel® temperatures climb into the upper 90s.

The next front could bring a few spotty thunderstorms to the area on Wednesday night and Thursday.
